Once the Guns Fell Silent: Germany between Versailles and Hitler @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room
Jul 16 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Once the Guns Fell Silent: Germany between Versailles and Hitler @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Dr. Mark Szuchman to talk about life in Germany between the cessation of fighting in November 1918 and the ascent of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor in February 1933. The post-war years in Germany signaled a seemingly continuous struggle to make sense of politics, the economy, indeed of normal life. This lecture will concentrate on key years of post-war Germany (1918-1933), serving to provide a broader context and a better understanding of what ensued thereafter. Ironically, some of the conditions experienced in Germany may be seen reflected in other regions of the world and at different times, including our own. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 at the door. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit www.greenmtnacademy.org.

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning welcomes Dave Golibersuch to talk about his trip to the North Pole. He was one of eleven adventurers who reenacted polar explorers Robert Peary and Matthew Henson’s 1906 “final dash” to the Pole. For twelve days, 250 miles were traversed over the frozen ocean by ski and dogsled. This talk will recount this life altering journey during which physical, mental and emotional challenges were confronted. Then we will take a look at what has happened to the Arctic Ocean in the twenty years since then. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
